Gray Partridge

Perdix perdix

Although you probably won't find them in a "pear tree," a couple of species of partridges inhabit Washington State. Gray Partridges prefer shrubby agricultural land, while the Chukar is found on steep, rocky slopes in shrub-steppe habitat. Native to Eurasia, both species were introduced to Washington State as game birds in the early 1900s, east of the Cascades.

Point No Point

Puget Trough

Don't let its anti-climactic name fool you. Point No Point is an excellent place to visit, especially in winter. Show up about an hour before high tide and be treated to fly-by waterfowl, alcids, loons, grebes, and gulls. The bushes and trees can host a variety of wintering or migrating songbirds.
